Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples Spread "Word Of Mouth"

Even though one of the Jurassic 5's MCs, Chali 2na, is still on the mend, the Los Angeles-based hip-hop collective has announced plans to team up with Dilated Peoples, the Beat Junkies, and MC Supernatural for the "Word Of Mouth" tour.

Jurassic 5 was forced to pull out of the final week of the Warped 2000 Tour after 2na and bandmates Marc 7even and Akil were hurt during a bus accident while traveling from Nashville, Tennessee, to Houston (see "Jurassic 5 In Bus Crash; Three Members Injured").

Chali 2na had to undergo surgery after fracturing his skull in the wreck, but he is expected to be fully recovered in time for the "Word Of Mouth" launch on September 13 in Los Angeles.

Jurassic 5 is on the road to support its new album, "Quality Control," which has sold more than 145,000 copies since its release in June.

The "Word Of Mouth" tour has only confirmed dates for seven concerts, although additional shows

are expected to be added to the itinerary in the next few days.

Here's how the "Word Of Mouth" outing is shaping up so far:

  • 9/13 - Los Angeles, CA @ House Of Blues
  • 9/14 - Los Angeles, CA @ House Of Blues
  • 9/16 - Chico, CA @ California State University
